While driving on state road 27, I starting smelling fuel in the cabin; when I get to my destination, about 7 miles after, I came out with the truck still running, notice a lot of fuel under the truck, I turned off the truck immediately and the flow of fuel gradually stopped.

The contact owns a 2002 Toyota Tundra. While parking the vehicle, the parking brake did not engage. The contact observed that there was a fuel leak under the vehicle and the frame was severely rusted. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was confirmed that the frame was severely rusted and needed to be repaired. The vehicle was repaired under NHTSA campaign number: 09V444000 (structure); however, the failure recurred. Approximately two and a half years later, the contact observed that the frame fractured. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer or repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 218,572.

Had frame replaced per recall, 5/2012. Had been smelling gas after fill ups so had airport Toyota, vandalia, Ohio - repair while they had truck torn apart- told me the gas tank port was corroded so they put new gasket on. Now I am smelling gas on passenger side. I am taking truck back to Toyota. I am concerned about the corroded gas tank because I had it repaired once before. I believe this problem is just as important as the corroded tank straps that were replaced in 2010. It's not something that is seen easily.
